Boevers Profile


We strive to create a community built on success and responsibility.  We will provide a safe place where students can develop through positive interactions with students and teachers.  We strive to help students become… problem solvers,
goal setters and dream achievers. 


Parent involvement is an essential component of student success. Parents are expected to be an integral part of their child’s education.  Our PTA is an active group and supports the staff and students in multiple ways. The commitment and devotion to our community crosses many generations. Current staff members were former Boevers students and several of our parents were former Boevers students. Every day we work together building into the lives of our future.
